The Ithaca Young Writers Institute, a noncredit summer program for high school students, offers two weeks of intensive writing workshops on the campus of Ithaca College in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.
Unlike most other young writers conferences or precollege summer writing programs, which focus primarily on creative writing, the Ithaca Young Writers Institute hosts a wide range of both creative and professional writing courses, from poetry to publishing, building on Ithaca College’s reputation for blending praxis with the arts. Taught by the distinguished faculty of the College’s Department of Writing, with assistance from the department’s most talented undergraduates, the curriculum mirrors the department’s own unique curriculum, giving aspiring young writers an immersive conference experience in an authentic college atmosphere.
